What goes into the making of a suicide bomber

Video capture of a young suicide bomber whose video tape was recovered by authorities.

PESHAWAR: There were six suicide bombers that attacked us in the middle of the night, says Colonel Nadeem, Commandant Dir Operation. Five of them detonated the explosives strapped to their bodies; however, one was missing till we discovered him hiding in the bushes. He was scared of killing himself because the effect of the drug had ended.

Nadeem was referring to an attack in Lower Dir earlier this month.

The arrested bomber, between 17 and 19 years of age, was shot dead after he hurled a grenade, killing a security officer. But he did not pull the cord of his suicide jacket.

Children who are trained as suicide bombers are injected with drugs to create an elated sense of the self. Once the effect of the drug wears off, the bomber is incapable of detonating himself, says Nadeem.

The general perception of a suicide bomber is someone indoctrinated with religious fervour. However, authorities have always claimed that much more than simple indoctrination is required to carry out suicide attacks.

Medical tests and research seems to be justifying this understanding. High-level sources say the drug given to suicide bombers is called Pervitin, which is a chemical derivative of methamphetamine, a psychoactive stimulant.

Methamphetamine, which is commonly known as meth, is available in Pakistan in the form of medicine by the name of Ritalin,
says Dr Mukhtar Azeemi, senior psychiatrist at the Lady Reading Hospital.

Its availability is scarce because of potential misuse, he adds. The drug is usually used for treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Non-prescriptive use of the drug can cause paranoid psychosis, a term used to describe loss of contact with reality which helps users achieve their target without giving anything else a thought.

Pervitin was also used in Nazi-Germany. German paratroopers caught behind British lines were described as fearless and berserk, marching further than was considered humanly possible. Also Japanese kamikaze pilots were documented to be high on meth.

Pakistani officials believe that the drug is injected into the bombers, making the effect more lethal, yet also fast receding.

Nevertheless, poverty, oppression and illiteracy are factors that cannot be ruled out as leading many young people towards militancy.

The story of one would-be suicide bomber illustrates this point. Currently in Sabaon, an institution for the rehabilitation of those trained as suicide bombers, his story reflects how innocent children are turned into killing machines.

The bomber, whose name is kept confidential, was apprehended by security forces during a search operation. During interrogation he yelled beat me more, as they tortured me before, says a security official. Upon hearing this, we took him out of solitary confinement and kept him with ourselves as he narrated his story. His father was a drug addict who hit him every day. At the age of 11 he was given some money by his mother to run away because she was afraid he would be killed by his father. He then found his way to a madrassa where the caretaker and his colleagues used to torture him. Escaping the torment, he ran away to Afghanistan where he joined the Taliban. They trained him in carrying out suicide attacks and sent him back to Pakistan where he was arrested.


There have been 248 suicide attacks in Pakistan between 2002 and 2010. More than 3,000 civilians and 2,500 military personnel have lost their lives in these attacks. Yet, not much research has been conducted into the phenomenon called suicide bombing.

It is very heart breaking to see these young people trapped in extreme ideology and used by the internal and external enemies of Muslims.

Wa Alaikum Assalam brother Biomat,

I had gone through your posts and those are worth knowing. There is no second opinion about our external enemies like CIA, RAW,MOSSAD & so on...but unfortunately these external enemies are using groups within our society to destabilize our country and we really need to speak up against those internal enemies like TTP...

May Allah protect our country and give us unity.

Folks please get off this conspiracy theory mantra and start looking at home. The enemy is within. They will keep killing unless we get to them. We see videos after videos of these goons who are killing our people but cannot open our eyes and see them… It is easy to put the blame on CIA , RAW, MOSSAD. Bhayoon & Behnoo it is our people with their insane agendas doing this. Education & only Education can solve this problem. Blaming others will not!

Dear Humblepakistani brother
Assalam-o-alaikum.
Brother did u read the articles i posted & history channel video about mind control YES or NO.
Second thing is that what education u need, on 18th July there were 5 suicide attacks in IRAQ, IRAN, AFGHANISTAN, PAKISTAN & ALGERIA... Is TTP is involved in all these countries. Yaar i think u need to see THE AGE OF DAJJAL, see the complete series partI & part II on youtube, ALLAH might open your eyes.
Where ever british & USA have entered they spread fitnas all round, yes i agree to brother knowledge seeker that our own people are involved.. But if u donot go to source more will be coming from different names like ASIAN TIGER etc..
In this post i cannot explain to you the NEW WORLD ORDER point of view, 9/11 conspiracy, Afghanistan invasion, first time suicide attacks in Pakistan, Iraq invasion, 26/11, also CRUSADE of 21st century. Brother u need to study these players if u want to know the truth. ALLAH knows best.. Jaza-k-ALLAH

Who is saying that dont do the repairs or reforms, if u have a fault in your system, will u not look into all possibilities why this happens so that it doesnot repeat. So who is holding current govt or politicians. FOR EXAMPLE:- Will u blame this govt or just to keep your words will say that YES OUR GOVT IS RIGHT I CANNOT BLAME THEM TODAY FOR SIGNING THE TRANSIT TRADE AGREEMENT WITH INDIA & AFGHANISTAN. I ALSO SUPPORT OUR GOVT FOR HIDDING THE ORIGINAL TRANSCRIPT IN WHICH SECRET AGREEMENT HAVE DONE TO ALLOW ITEMS FROM AFGHANISTAN TO INDIA. THERE IS PRESSURE FROM USA ON THIS AGREEMENT, MADAM CLINTON CAME PAKISTAN JUST TO SEE THE MONSOON RAINS IN LAHORE & ISLAMABAD.
Yaar just to start argument for the sake of argument, u can go where ever u want. My point is even u design your network security u send PATCHES to all your users, even there is always a new possibility that hacker can attack from new unknown flaw or hole.. But cannot attack from prev known holes or flaws, got my point.
Here nothing is done, even made worse.. Secondly if u are thinking in this way that suicide bomber is some what related to ISLAM , then if u want to erase ISLAM from Pakistan just to prove your point, or remove MADRASSAS, MULLAHS, IMAMS, MOAZZINS, do you know how far u can go.
Are u thinking of following new ideas coming from media ( MADRASSAS IN GOVT CONTROL, GOVT APPOINTED MULLAHS, IMAMS, AZAAN FROM CENTRAL MASJID TO WHOLE CITY that is no need of moazzin, i can quote many more VISIONARY IDEAS TO REFORM ISLAM & PRACTISING ISLAM).. Sorry for this..

It is clearly written in Quran that they will not be your freinds until they make you as christian or jews. Being a muslim (please note muslim doesnot mean QADIYANI/AHMEDI) now a days a crime. So let me know how far you are ready to go for the call of USA on DO MORE..

Jaza-k-ALLAH.

Literature and arts encourage rational thinking and we get to reflect on our violent behaviors, social upheaval and the extremist tendencies in society. Academic activities that engage us in productive debate to improve our societal norms are a blessing to fight extremism in society. Fighting extremism calls for changing our violent behaviors
